Subject[PATCH v2 1/3] x86/boot: Add xloadflags bits for 5-level kernel checking
Add two bits XLF_5LEVEL and XLF_5LEVEL_ENABLED for 5-level kernel.
Bit XLF_5LEVEL indicates if 5-level related code is contained
in this kernel.
Bit XLF_5LEVEL_ENABLED indicates if CONFIG_X86_5LEVEL=y is set.

They are being used in later patch to check if kexec/kdump kernel
is loaded in right place.
